Actually a lot of the 32-bit ABI is already implemented (thanks
Nicolas!) and if you're generating the LLVM IR yourself it should
already work reasonably well. I've heard from people successfully
using the JIT on PPC Linux. However, clang and llvm-gcc both lack
proper ABI support, it's also not possible to bootstrap llvm-gcc yet.
I'm currently implementing the missing ABI features in the PPC backend
and I expect to start working on llvm-gcc next week. So stay tuned :)
